I'm going to rent myself a house
In the shade of the freeway
Gonna pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day

Love this song.
Wife? You must not be a man. You must not be a dreamer. You must not yet be 50, or perhaps it missed you as it roared by.
this song is about his wife who killed herself

Some of the greatest lyrics ever written - provocative to this day.

His songs make me want to make love to somebody!
this is one of the greatest song writers ever
jgardner880, interesting comments.

I heard that too, but my assumption is that he "knew" it, and it was placed intentionall y . He may be over rated, but he is a top notch musician.

I've grown to like Jackson Browne, as long as he keeps the political crap at bay...but I could say that about any musician.
berkely early 70s j browne
saw him open for linda ronstadt bbbbeeeutiuf u l l l
I think Jackson Browne is way overrated. Notice on this song how he occasionally drifts into the chords and harmony for "Stay."
This song cuts deep to the bone.
Such a great song, my favorite by him!
extremely talented brilliant yet kind man as he has mellowed
